404 When accessing my admin location


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have recently installed ProcessWire as I am learning to develop my own personal website.

The installation process was completed, pressed 'Login to Admin' and I am receiving a 404 error.

I am using a GoDaddy Shared Hosting Package with Plesk installed.

Does anyone have any experience with using ProcessWire on a shared hoasting package?

Many Thanks.

My best guess is that it's an htaccess issue - most likely an AllowOverride setting that isn't letting mod_rewrite kick in as needed. If you're not familiar with these settings in Plesk, it might be best to submit a support ticket.

First thing I would try is to add some gibberish text to the top of the PW root .htaccess file to see if it's being loaded and go from there.
